    I recently had my rear door replaced due to a collision. When I picked up the vehicle, the rear window wiper did not work. I went back and the wiper was connected, once this was done, the wiper would not turn off. When I took it back to the dealership, I was told I needed a windshield wiper switch which is in the hand signal. The front wipers worked. Is there a rear wiper only switch in the rear?

It is the power window relay for feeding power to all the windows except the drivers. If the drivers works the other three don't it is time to replace the power window relay.

Another quick test is to see at each window if the switch works then try it at the driver master switches for each window. If you notice a difference then it is either the power window relay or the master switch.

You can post further feedback based on what you find so I can pinpoint exactly. If all windows are not working then it is the 30a power fuse

Pontiac torrent rear washer problem


The motor is protected with a fuse and a circuit breaker. Check both to see if either need to be replaced. The fuse box is under the dash on the drivers side near the door. Open the box and look on the lid. You will find a list of all fuses, their amperage and what they protect. Remove the correct fuse by pulling it out with the plastic "fuse puller" that is stored in the fuse box cover. It looks similar to a short pair of tweezers.The fuse is burned out and needs to be replaced if the filament in the fuse is burned in half. If the fuse is good, you would next want to remove the wiper motor and use a volt meter to check for voltage between the wires that plug into the motor. Be sure to check for voltage with the wiper motor switch turned on. If you have power then you have bad motor, if you don't have power, you have an electrical problem.

The breaker should only turn off if the motor overheats due to something like the wiper being frozen to the window and not able to operate when you turn it on. This should reset once the wipers are turned off and the motor cools.

You probably have a poor electrical connection somewhere between the switch and the motor.

97 jeep cj windows and wipers stopped working fuses are ok


97 wrangler right? CJ ended in 86 (last year)
97 TJ, you mean, or was posting to Cherokee correct all along./?????
factoid:
The Chrysler Corporation bought out AMC in 1987, shortly after the Jeep CJ was replaced with the AMC-designed Jeep Wrangler or YJ.


test the fuse, looking only finds the ones blow to H3LL
they can in fact just crack a bit. and are in fact bad.
use any DMM or any ohmmeter, "resistance Rx1 or RX2 range , low range) 0 ohms good, , infinity bad.
only that works. every time.
lets read the FSM together.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
wipers first. USA not export.
Front wiper not rear. ok>?
page 8w-53 wiper schematic.

fuse 2 and 3 must be good.
then fuse 14 front wiper ,fuse 12 is rear
if the fuses are good, (truely) we never ohm fuses we use VOLTS
on both sides of fuse, volts never lies.
then what is bad, easy bad wiper switch, motor or ground to motor.
the voltmeter again wins the toss and if no 12vdc to motor
then the switch or wire are bad.
if you have 12v to motor then motor is bad , if ground to motor is no cut.

now windows. what windows, are then not crank windows or zipper windows?

i think you posted wrong car,,

Rear wiper motor


its electric,
and all electr. check fuses first. (read operators guide in glove box) under fuses....
it can only be 3-4 things.
1: bad fuse. (dead car battery, car run?)
2: bad wires. (yes, connectors too)
3: bad motor
4: it's jammed, (near impossible on rear)

if you have a voltmeter, all this is easy. use it and find if you have 12v to the motor. end story.

Rear wiper, rear defroster & rear wiper fluid all stopped working at the same time. bought a new rear wiper motor installed it and nothing... anyone having or had the same problem in the past?


Check fuse panel ...if fuses for those rear devices are OK look at the wiring at the rear hatch. Possibly inside that door, or a ground condition that is not functioning or disconnected connector related to electrical devices in the rear hatch door.
Good luck!

Rear wiper does not work at all. front wipers work fine. rear washer works


1. check the fuse to the rear wiper motor
2. check for power to rear wiper motor at the motor (power wire going in to the wiper motor with rear wiper switch on)
If you have good fuses & have power going in to the rear wiper motor...
3. Pull old rear wiper motor and install a new rear wiper motor.
Thank you please drive thru......

Rear Wiper Quit Working


It is the Motor. This is a VERY Common GM Problem that they have not Fixed since 1990. You will need to remove the Rear Door Panel to Access the Motor.

Wipers wont work


1.  Turn on your wipers and pop your hood.   2.  If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses. 3.  If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken.   4.  If the problem is electrical, do the following:      1.  Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse.      2.  Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground               coming out.  Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections.       3.  Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the                       following order:           Fuse box           wiper switch           wiper motor      4.  In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault.  I do not recommend replacing                 anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing           coming out.)
